My name is David and I reside In Thailand. Thailand changes it's rules and regulations in all aspects of Government frequently, I have no problem with this, they do this to help the people of Thailand.
Requirements for teaching English and obtaining a Teachers License, and a Work Permit is no exception, whilst I can understand most parts of the regulations there are two areas that are unclear to this scribe.
I have been in contact with officialdom but I have not yet been able to get clear cut answers, this is I believe due to my limited knowledge of the Thai language .
There are two Questions that I have and I most certainly would appreciate advise.
1. Is an online TOFL certificate valid in Thailand for the purposes of obtaining a work permit?
2. Is it a requirement to also have a degree for the same purposes?
I know many Teachers who have obtained their work permit without a degree but this seems to be at the discretion of the interviewing officer.
Ladies And Gentleman I await your comments Thank You.
